2.5-Hour Private Hilton Head Afternoon Dolphin Watching Sail

2.5-Hour Private Hilton Head Afternoon Dolphin Watching Sail

star-5
This 2.5 hour Private Afternoon Sailing tour will take us to Port Royal Sound (generally the best wind for sailing on Hilton Head) on the North side of the island. During the day, this is generally filled with exciting winds for great sailing along with the beautiful scenery and wildlife such as dolphins, birds, sting ray and Manatee are some of the great things we get to see on a very regular basis. This is a Monohull Sailboat which means it will heal over (completely normal but very exciting - designed not to tip over!). All this without the noise of the motor in the back ground - we like to sail not motor sail!!! We want our guest to be very comfortable on board our vessel known as "Knot the Office" and therefore if anyone is uncomfortable with the healing we will significantly reduce the healing to ensure everyone is comfortable. This is a fun and exciting activity but yet very relaxing and rewarding at the same time. Please call us directly to discuss other sail trip options

There’s also Atalaya, the picturesque, Moorish-style castle which was their residence and sculpting studios. This tour is around two hours in length with training. Still plenty of time to enjoy the beach and relax before or after your “Segway PT Experience”.
